comstock, who is one of the chairs of the romney for virginia campaign. guest: i would just quote joe biden -- the middle class has years. they have been buried because this president's economic policies failed. the president said when he came would get unemployment wellhe said that he was going to cut the debt that was $10 trillion in half, down to $5 trillion. now it is $16 children. he failed by a factor of three times what he said he was going to do. his health care bill, a huge government monstrosity, not level, would end up costing us $2,500 more in premiums when he that it would be $2,500 less. the president himself said if he did not get this done, if he did not turn this economy around in three years it would be a one-term proposition. why we are looking to mitt romney -- i was talking before about how romney cut the budget in massachusetts. on a bipartisan basis with 87% legislature and that the same time he cut taxes 19 times. do get -- to get massachusetts democrats to cut taxes, you have to come in with good policies which governor romney understand as a business person and und
to wisconsin. joe biden is going to wisconsin. the fact that they are going there and campaigning at this stage in the campaign when there is such other critical states shows you this is a danger area now for them. if you look at mitt romney's nonohio scenario and think what are the ways i would win if i don't win ohio wisconsin is key too that and looking better for him. >> greta: you are from wisconsin. >> exactly. they are going all in this wisconsin. even buying ad time in minneapolis which is an expensive tv market to get a few hundred thousand votes in western wisconsin. really is interesting this could be the first year where ohio would go for the democrat and wisconsin could go for the republican. first of all, this is the auto bailout. that plays well for are obama in ohio. where are it saved a lot of jobs but not in wisconsin where the auto bailout failed to keep open the gm plant in janesville. and scott walker's union reforms succeeded and then paul ryan the native son who could help out a lot. >> i also think there is a snub value. i remember when there was a recall vote and the m
president joe biden had to say about mitt romney and paul ryan. >> they can't even get up the gumgs to condemn the stalts made by two of their candidates in the united states senate. it's not enough to tell me you don't agree. it's not to stand up to say what they said was wrong. simply wrong. >> today mitt romney did not address what his campaign national cochair john sununu said last night about colin powell's endorsement of president obama. >> we have to wonder whether that's an endorsement based on issues or whether he's got a slightly different reason for preferring president obama. >> what reason would that be? >> well, i think when you have somebody of your own race that you're proud of being president of the united states, i applaud colin for standing with him. >> what reason would that be was the question and john sununu issued this lie today. colin powell is a friend and i respect the endorsement decision that he made today and i do not doubt that it was based on anything but his support of the president's policies. piers morgan's question was whether clin powell should le

their ohio campaigning for tomorrow as well. joe biden also canceled campaigning. how do they handle this and then you've got the image of mitt romney doing what they say is not a campaign event, in the same place they were going to hold a campaign event, they say they're making collections for hurricane storm relief. chris cizilla, first to you, we checked with the red cross, the red cross said they're always grateful for donations, but this is not what they need or want. they always tell people please donate money. we have our own packagers and wholesalers and distribution system and to now get niece canned goods from the romney event in ohio and have to package it, used clothes they have to clean, they can't go directly to victims what they need is donations of blood and donations of money. it does seem like a thinly veiled -- why ohio? why choose ohio? >> right. because the storm is kind of -- >> not in ohio. >> you ask how do you -- how does president obama and mitt romney handle this politically? the answer i think can be summed up in one word delicately. it's a very fine and t
a campaign event today into a rereef event, their surrogates have been out there, ann romney, joe biden, michelle obama, bill clinton. their campaigns have continued to run advertising. we've seen solicitations for contributions not to the obama campaign but to the red cross from that massive email list that barack obama has. the campaigns were up and running. they're still doing all the things they normally do. there's a little more sensitivity in the states that are affected by the hurricane but they can't really afford to pull out, to push the pause button. >> ifill: democrats have been saying that mitt romney during the republican primary debates may have said that he would actually cut back on fema which is not as unpopular as it once was. >> he said he wanted to move as much of that responsibility to the states and to private contributions as possible. so he's getting hit for that right now. what would mitt romney's fema look like? would it be as well funded as the current organization? there's about $7 billion in the bank right now. if mitt romney and republicans were in control
should be concerned about. there's hardly any mention made about the comments joe biden made to the man who came to pick up the body of his son. i don't know that these are the kind people that we should ever presented last but no one will touch these issues. guest: if nobody touched those issues, you would not know about it. there's no shortage of information these days. these campaigns are being covered like never before and you can get a lot of the daily horse race aspect, but there's plenty of coverage of what the candidates are saying of the campaign trail and how that equates to the previous statements, policies they have enacted. i think that there is plenty of information for people. they just have to be willing to sit down and find it. host: here is "the bloomberg insider" take on colorado put out on august 27th. can you explain? guest: in our last legislative session, for the third time, lawmakers tried to pass a bill that would recognize same-sex of unions. for the first time, they got republican votes in the house, the chamber controlled by republicans in a one-vote margin.
in the first place. >> sean: here's the deal. they gotta send joe biden to pennsylvania because the polls are so close. michigan is tied, wisconsin is tied, colorado, romney is up, virginia he's up, florida he's up, and we have rasmussen now showing the moment ump has shifted in ohio. if i'm barack obama, there's no poll now moving in his direction, juan, and states that he won by huge margins, he's either tied or just slightly ahead. that's a problem for him. >> well, look. i don't think anyone debates the idea it's going to be a very close race, but the numbers you put out. >> sean: which ones? >> they're all sided. >> ask juan about the npr poll. >> go ahead, dana. >> let's talk about the npr poll. an 8-point swing? >> there's a margin of error, dana. hold on. dana was around in '08, i'm sorry, back in '04 when the poll said that kerry was going to win in a landslide. didn't happen, did it? >> thank goodness. >> that's right, dana. just think for a second. romney has never been ahead. >> sean: he's ahead now. >> in the real clear politics. >> sean: juan, juan, juan. >> colorado, wiscon
, jeb bush. and joe biden will be in florida as well. coverage today around 3:00 p.m. on c-span, campaign rally in that state. and the spread the jobs report comes out, could that be a game tinder? could that be an october surprise? guest: i do not think so. over the last several months, good news or bad news, these jobs reports are not moving numbers. a big bet is because the average american doesn't really pay attention to jobs numbers. the vaguely no unemployment is high and their own personal economic situation is not good. that is their view of the economy. their view of the economy is not clear to be changed with what bls says. david job whether their neighbors have a job. -- they have a job whether their neighbors have a job. is this jobless report comes out and it is really bad or really great news, first of all, i do not think a lot of people will pay attention become a significant amount of people have already voted. millions of people in florida, ohio, every place where democrats are trying to drive early voting and absentee voting. they have already cast their b
